    Scarista House is a very special place for us. We first visited at the turn of the millennium and a couple of years later held our wedding blessing reception there, which all our guests remember so fondly. Our stay last night was our fourth. We...More

    Most relaxing place to stay in Western Isles. Beautiful view of the bay, very well looked after by Patricia and Tim plus their staff. Food and wine list delicious. A heavenly place to stay. Very comfortable rooms. The afternoon tea is just too tempting.

    My recent question regarding review of 2012 referred to Glebe Cottage not the house. Sorry for any misunderstanding as I believe the house is very good accommodation.

    Hi. this review from 2012 is off putting. Do you know if the issues identified e.g holes in curtains, door hanging off, no extractor fan, tiles missing, have been rectified or is it in the same state as then? thanks as wanting to book.

    I think that was a malicious review. It has been refurbished since then with a new bathroom, but at no point were there holes in the curtains etc.
